The Abrasive Flow Solutions (AFS) group celebrated the company’s first year of business just lately (March 2022) by hosting a two-day launch operate at its manufacturing plant in Benoni, Gauteng.
AFS, which specialises in the design and manufacture of slurry-related valves, was established by the Engineering Solutions Group (ESG) of Invicta Holdings Limited, as a half of the Group’s technique to increase its fluid expertise providers in Africa.
“The AFS group works closely with our sister firm BMG, to extend specialist companies, via the design, distribution, supply and support of a broad vary of slurry-related valves, together with Klep diaphragm and wedge gate valves,” says Donald Morrison, General Manager, AFS. “Our specialists efficiently achieved their first challenge, which they set for themselves when the company was established – to enhance the standard of diaphragm valves, by extending service life and reducing the maintenance requirements of this range. This aim was achieved through hard work and the implementation of superior design applied sciences, materials and coatings and is a great tribute to our staff.
เกจวัดแรงดันถังออกซิเจน over the past year include the institution of a brand new rubber lining facility, with the set up of autoclaves which have capacities of as much as 10 m in size. In the rubber business, autoclaves are used to vulcanise rubber merchandise, which are not but steady dimensionally, by elevating heat and stress. An autoclave is similar to an enormous oven, with extraordinarily high temperature and stress rankings, that make rubber parts secure and solid in measurement and form.
“Another advancement is a model new pinch valve sleeve manufacturing facility within our new rubber lining and sleeve manufacturing facility.
“We are now in a place to manufacture all pinch sleeves, including high strain and pneumatic sleeves. AFS pinch sleeves are manufactured from the highest high quality rubber merchandise, which would possibly be equipped by Rema Tip Top. We have additionally made a big investment to increase our hydraulic urgent facility and through our new design and course of, we are able to manufacture high-pressure diaphragms capable of pressures in extra of 20 Bar.
“AFS has enhanced the design and manufacturing of its slurry knife gate valve vary, with dimensions ranging in diameter from a 50 mm unit to 1.5 m valves. The vary contains flanged, wafer, lugged, urethane lined and high-pressure knife gate valves.
“BMG also distributes a domestically manufactured vary of abrasion-resistant valves for Dual Products International. These products embody pinch valves, new water air launch valves, Resilient Seated Gate (RSV) valves and rotary disc sleeve valves. AFS has recently manufactured and factory-tested some bigger DN 700 hydraulically operated 20 Bar valves for a customer in Europe.
“Recently launched Dual rotary disc sleeve valves comprise a sophisticated rotating gate valve with sleeve design, developed specifically for heavy abrasive and corrosive slurries and water and wastewater installations. This patented design allows the valve to cycle through heavy slurries with out sticking. Wafer, flanged and high-pressure variants are available.
“Our highly skilled team has an intensive understanding of the processes where valves are put in and is ready to specify the correct valves required for each software. We also assist prospects in solving the issues of adverse installations and applications.
“To ensure optimum security, effectivity and the prolonged service life of every system, the choice of the correct industrial slurry valve is crucial. Valve selection is predicated on varied elements, including the size and shape of particles, pressure, temperatures and chemical content material.”
This AFS portfolio is especially well-suited for use in harsh circumstances in numerous industries, including mining, chemical and petrochemical, water and wastewater, power manufacturing and agri-food industries. Important installations just lately, have been in mining slurry, tailings dams, and acid pumping purposes, which depend on plant availability and the safe operation of valves.
Another achievement for AFS is that ESG has lately achieved recognition as a Level 2 contributor to Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE), which implies clients can declare BEE procurement recognition of a hundred twenty five percent in opposition to all purchases.
